Top gift picks

Children's books make a great gift idea at Christmas and all year round. Toys can break or go out of fashion, but a good book is a lasting treasure that can be enjoyed again and again. Usborne have been producing children's books for over 40 years and have a range that is suitable from birth all the way through to the teenage years.

Here are our top five types of Usborne children's books for Christmas.

Stocking Fillers for babies

The award-winning That's not my... series of Usborne books is ideal for babies and toddlers, whose inquisitive natures are at their peak. These brightly illustrated board books are robust and contain simple, repetitive storylines, appealing illustrations, and carefully chosen textures to touch and feel on every page.

That's not my reindeer and That's not my donkey are just two of our festive favourites. See the full range here.

 Awesome Activities

Whether you're after creative activities to engage your child or puzzles and games to keep them busy on long journeys, Usborne activity books have it all!

A Doodle a Day and 200 Paper Planes to fold and fly are a couple of our favourite activity picks. And there are lots more to choose from here.





Baking and Cookery

Children are never too young to help out in the kitchen, so treat them to a baking or cookery book to inspire them this Christmas.

Budding bakers will love The very best baking book for children and health conscious cooks can set their children on the right track with 30 Healthy things to cook and eat.





Luxury books

Usborne's clothbound gift books are a real treat that will be pored over again and again for years to come.

The Usborne Fairtytale Treasury will be adored by little ones and older children alike as the stunning illustrations and captivating stories whisk them away to lands of sleeping princesses, fairy godmothers and ferocious beasts.





Treat a teenager

Usborne young adult fiction will keep teenagers on tenterhooks as they delve into stories of mystery, romance and crime.

We love Soulmates an "epic, electrifying and extraordinary debut about falling in love".
